|''Cavalcade of Stars'' - 26 August 1950|
An episode of the DuMont Network series "Cavalcade of Stars" starring Jackie Gleason. Special guests: Bert Wheeler and Vivian Blaine. Please forgive the awful picture quality, as well as the very weak writing: At first, they didn't know what to do with Gleason. The writing improved considerably in later episodes, added with an increased emphasis on Gleason.
